Gather Installation Data

Refer to the items in this section to gather the information that you will need during the installation. Record the information before you begin installing the software, so you can refer to it during the installation.

You can install the Notes Database Agent using either the CommCell Console or the installation package created by the Download Manager. Any item that applies to only one of these installation methods is noted.

Commvault Package to Install

Install the Domino Database package, which is under the Applications category.

Note:

If the File System Agent is not installed on the computer, the File System Core and File System packages are automatically installed with the package you selected. The File System Agent will not consume a license.

To gather the required information for the File System Agent, refer to "Gather Installation Data" in the Preinstallation Checklist for the Windows File System Agent.

Client Computer Details

If the File System Agent or another package is already installed on the computer, you are not required to gather all the computer details again. The level of detail depends on how the package you selected is installed, as follows:

  • For installations using the CommCell Console, the installation program requests only the name of the client computer.
  • For installations using the installation package, the installation program reads the details from the previous installation.

This information is only applicable to installations using the CommCell Console.

Collect the following Domino server details:

  • Name of the Domino instance
  • Path to the directory where the instance resides
  • Path to the directory where the Domino software resides

This information is only applicable to installations using the installation package.

Collect the following partition details:

  • Name of the Domino partition - By default, the naming convention followed is partition_0, partition_1, and so on.
